Description

By the end of this course, you will learn to write successful responses to the 1-hour essays. The IRAC approach is used to organize the lectures. I have decoded the exam and have produced formulas and advanced techniques that you can apply. You will see improvements in the key areas of:

- Issue spotting.

- Discussion of major issues.

- Approach to non-major issues.

- knowing when and how to write effective rebuttals.

The formulas will help you stay on course to ensure you are targeting the proper areas. Also, practical application exercises are included.

Moreover, the hypothetical essay examples are from multi-state subjects (property of the State Bar of California). This means that the course is also helpful to current law students throughout the United States.

Here are some of the other concepts you will learn. You will know to perform advanced strategies in these areas: 

- Timing techniques. 

- Outlining strategies.  

- Strategies to writing with confidence.

- Know how to recognize “sucker” issues (rabbit hole discussions).

- Techniques to learning the substantive law.

- Techniques to approaching commercial outlines.

It is in this course where you will develop effective lawyer-writing skills. This is the beginning of your success on the bar. Let’s get started. 

Who this course is for:
  • This course is for both bar candidates and current law students. Also, this course is intended for those taking a bar review course or for those doing independent study.
